URB: You mix a lot of current techno, garage and bass tunes in your mixes, how do you find common ground in such different audible vibes?
GF: I try not to think about tracks in terms of genres. That sounds corny but I reckon it’s better to listen to their atmosphere and mood. When you look at things along those lines, it isn’t so hard to, for example, place garage records next to techno ones – as long as they create a narrative in your set that makes sense to the listener. The challenge is to make sure their technical characteristics don’t clash too much, but that’s half the fun. I respect the purism of people who can play 3 hours of straight techno or house or whatever, but that’s boring to me.

This is a mixture of tracks that tie together similar vibes for me - deep, melancholy, spacey, melodic, - generally music with a huge amount of warmth and emotional resonance.
